Do you know the difference between fixatives and varnishes? There are so many brands and options by Golden, Winsor & Newton, Grumbacher, Gamblin, etc.
I invited Ed S Brickler, Technical Consultant from Chartpak, Inc. to explain what common mistakes are in varnishing paintings. Visual artists who do acrylic, watercolor, pastel and oil painting as well as drawing will learn how to varnish paintings and protect drawings from UV light and deterioration using proper techniques and materials.

If you’re confused about using your materials or don’t know which ones to buy, a good rule of thumb is to contact the manufacturer. Also, many companies keep their own art blogs and educational videos about the use of their art supplies.
